Gohdes player of tournament
ROCKHAMPTON'S Matt Gohdes is making a habit of playing starring roles in hockey.
Gohdes was named player of the tournament at the Under-15 Boys National Hockey Championships in Brisbane on Saturday.
Fast following in the footsteps of his cousin, Kookaburras striker Jamie Dwyer, Gohdes scored two goals in Queensland's 3-1 win over Western Australia in the final.
He was joined in the national champion team by fellow Rockhampton players Jared Truscott, Ashley Hennegan and goalkeeper Tom RendellWoodley.
Gohdes, in his second year with the Queensland under-15 team, finished with 11 goals for the tournament.
Their only loss was a 4-3 defeat against Western Australia in their final pool game on Friday.
Rockhampton hockey players were also celebrating in Ipswich where they joined the victorious Queensland (1) team at the under-13 boys national championships.
Queensland (1) won the title after a 4-2 win over Victoria. Rockhampton's Matthew Deeth and Sam Acutt joined the national champions.
The Queensland (2) team, also featuring several Rockhampton players, finished fifth after a gutsy 4-2 loss to New South Wales after both were scoreless at half time.
